Alright, alright...


...my last few entries have been important.....BUT not too much content. Today is different! I am involved with the Taste of Hartford this year in a "draw on a napkin" event. I was assigned the restaurant, DISH on Asylum Ave in Hartford. I went in for a visit before they opened and took some reference pics and was impressed. Pretty cool lookin' place. Here is my layout and napkin!

Granby Artists start a new challenge

It\'s a new year and The Granby Artists Association\'s painters group has come up with an awesome challenge! Every day for the month of January, we have to draw a 30 minute sketch...so I decided to challenge myself in a few ways. One way is learning to draw on the IPad...here\'s one of \'em. I was watching some princess movies with my daughter...you can see the influence.
Plus, finished 4 Junkfoods today! Wahoo!
